A little sweeter with more fruit and a touch more spirity perhaps than the Legacy release, plenty of flavour here with sweet barley, smoky & peppery peat and salty coastal influences.
Torabhaig Legacy 2017
Surprisingly soft and well-integrated there is something very much elemental about this whisky which more than resembles it closest neighbour on Skye. Definitively a product of its environment – the future looks bright at Torabhaig!
Ardmore 9 Years Old 2008 Mossburn No. 6
An eclectic mix of soft Highland heather brush smoke or beech wood smoke which transitions into diluted Islay peat smoke and coastal influences. 84/100
Mannochmore 10 Years Old 2008 Mossburn No. 16
Works well both at cask strength or reduced, plenty of fruit and a sweet cake-like nature.
Glenrothes 11 Years Old 2007 Mossburn No. 26
Again another insight into unerderlying spirit character with masses of maltiness present from Glenrothes. Slightly less vanilla/wood/cask influence though this is a little younger too.
North British 15 Years Old 2003 Mossburn No. 24
Very light and drinkable single grain balanced with American/ex-bourbon oak influence, soft, fruity and creamy.
